In its own right and quiet, in a clearing in the forests of the Småland region, this old farm (Kolabo) with a spacious house, originally built around 1900 by two brothers for their families. From the outside, it shows a traditional, red-and-white robe and a typical carved wooden veranda. From the inside, however, it presents itself in a contemporary and mint condition, with a bright, inviting living ambience. Three old tiled stoves and a fireplace provide in the colder months for pleasant warmth and a cozy living atmosphere.
On the ground floor there are kitchen, laundry, bathroom, dining room, 2 living rooms and a bedroom. Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, one of them with adjoining children's room (small room), also a bathroom and a living gallery. In total there are beds for 10 persons (+ two children).
The kitchen and laundry room are equipped with extra-wide stove (four plates and oven), microwave, refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, coffee maker, washing machine, tumble dryer.
Internet reception is only possible via UltraStick - available at Radiohus in Bredaryd.
The house stands on a 1-hectare natural plot, with a fire pit and other outbuildings and plenty of space for romping and playing. Ping pong table, darts and other games are available in one of the barns. Also a tandem as well as old, but functional bicycles.
On the terrace or the balcony you can sit in the evening and admire the sunsets. The next neighbor lives 1 km further.

On foot you can reach the lakeside of Gryssjön, where the rowing boat is moored. The large lake Bolmen is only 4 km from the house.
